Jewelry-Making: Creative, Therapeutic, and Profitable

Here at FIDM, we offer a variety of degree options for our students. If there's a profession on the fashion careers list that you want to pursue, it's more than likely that we have a specialized program for it. And while you can learn a lot from our online courses, there's no real replacement for the hands-on training and expert instruction you'll receive in our on-campus degree courses.

If you've ever wondered how to become a fashion designer but you aren't sure whether you want to design clothing, there are tons of other options at your disposal. One of those options is to attend jewelry-making school. Not only is jewelry making an enjoyable creative outlet that requires a lot of skill, but it's also a growing enterprise. Plus, studies have shown that jewelry-making has numerous psychological and emotional benefits.

Making jewelry is highly creative

As with other design concentrations, jewelry making requires a very creative mind. But it's also thought to be a bit of a luxury item, which means your products need to appeal to a specific audience. Although creating and producing jewelry is many times a collective effort, it does require the designer to think with both sides of his or her brain. At FIDM's jewelry-making school and design studio, our students become acquainted with the entire process, from design to production to marketing.

Jewelry-making can be very profitable

In 2015, the U.S. apparel market was the largest in the world, valued at approximately $343 billion. As a jewelry designer, you can be part of that growing industry. Depending on your specialization, jewelry-making can be quite profitable, even if you run your own business. Of course, you need to have the right knowledge and the right strategy, which is where our courses come in handy. Our industry connections and renowned instructors can help jump-start your career. In addition, one perk of our location is that our jewelry design studio is situated right in the heart Los Angeles's Jewelry District. With the knowledge and connections you'll receive through our program, you'll be able to stay ahead of the competition and pave a path for your career.

Your career can boost your well-being

There aren't many careers that actually add to your sense of well-being. But recent studies have found that jewelry-making has many psychological and emotional advantages. Whether you go to jewelry-making school for a career or choose to make jewelry as a hobby, the act of jewelry-making can have a positive impact on your mood. In one study, 24% of participants said that the craft increased their levels of happiness, self-worth, relaxation, and accomplishment. Generally, it helps to relieve stress, connect with friends and family, and foster a sense of pride.
